Pujols… was there any doubt?

Well, actually there was.  The vote was close (378-351).  Andruw Jones and his 51 homeruns gave Albert a run for his money. 

Pujols was humble in victory:

 ”A lot of the fans and even the players, they missed Barry,” Pujols said of the seven-time MVP, who had won the previous four seasons. “I wished he would have been healthy and played.”

Through 5 years, Pujols has averaged 40 homers, 124 ribbies, and a .332 batting average. 

He may only have been out of the starting gates only 5 years but my gut feeling tells me that barring major injury or scandal, this man will be speaking in front of many people in Cooperstown when his time comes.

Time will tell.
